Happy National Baby Wearing Week!
Babywearing is one of those all around great ideas. It’s beneficial for bonding, great to have your hands free but still be able to carry your baby close, and saves the hassle of a stroller, when you just need to get out of the house for a bit. If your REALLY good at it, you can even breastfeed while babywearing.

Not thinking much of it, I had the Scepter can sitting on my camp table next to the truck where it made for easy access, but it also put it into view of those passing by. To my surprise I had numerous people ask about it at the event and have had a few questions since then. There are numerous places around the internet where you can find instructions, but since there seemed to be an interest I thought I would share how I did mine.
So what is Swagging?
Swagging is to travel with one’s personal belongings in a bundle, and that is what I did from New Jersey to Southern California with my Outback Swags Pioneer Tent keeping me comfortable all the way.
